A Nigerian woman died in the United States, and no one noticed for more than a week until neighbors reported a bad odor coming from her apartment in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
Uju Onyeyili, from Abatete in Anambra State, is claimed to have been in an accident two weeks ago and to have returned home after abandoning her car at the scene.
After noticing a bad odor emanating from Uju’s residence, neighbors called the authorities. They also said they hadn’t seen her in a week and that she needed to tow her car, which had been involved in the accident.
Police conducted an investigation and discovered her rotting body at her residence.
Unfortunately, no close relative of hers could be reached in the United States, thus her photo was released online as the police begged family members to pick up her body or the state would dispose of it.
Onyeyili, a member of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (Olumba Olumba Olumba), was eventually buried by the sect in the US.
Her death has sparked a conversation about Nigerians who move to the US and proceed to live an isolated life.
